Ballymena (Northern Ireland)

Come and say hello!

Our rehoming centres are not open for public browsing but you can still make an appointment to adopt or bring a dog to us.

We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

We’re now matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can now meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment and this now applies to all of our rehoming centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Welcome to Dogs Trust Ballymena. We are a happy, friendly team and would love you to come and visit us at the Centre to see our fantastic facilities and all the waggy tails of our doggy guests. We can care for up to 50 dogs at any one time and our facilities include a training barn, wonderful woodland walks and a big field to run around. We have dedicated rehoming staff who have lots of experience in helping match dogs to their forever families and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have about the rehoming process. We look forward to seeing you very soon.

Did you know our Supporter Relations Officer (SRO), Samuel Reid, can offer free talks to community groups and organise tours of the rehoming centre?  He also deals with all the local enquiries about donations in memory of a loved one, as well as answering any questions about our free Canine Care Card Scheme or legacies. He also organises the annual Fun Day and helps with the social media coverage for the rehoming centre too!
